But is there a way to transfer or sync music, movies and TV shows from iTunes library to Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 freely? Most folks are confused and below are the several discussions about how to get iTunes videos, music ported over to Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 for palyback:
Question 1: How to sync iTunes with Galaxy Tab 2?
I just bought a new Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and I am wondering if I could play music files I purchased on iTunes on my Galaxy Tablet? I have searched around the internet but I haven't got a specific answer to this question. Besides, the movies and TV-shows I have purchased on iTunes will be playable on the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1?

iPad user. Just got my Galaxy Tab 2 a little while ago from ups, I was wondering how can i transfer my songs and some movies over from itunes to my Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
Question 3: Downloading iTunes movie onto the new Nexus 10?
I'm planning on getting a Nexus 10 when I get the money for it and was wondering if I can transfer an iTunes movie onto it. I bought The Hunger Games Blu-Ray/Digital Download combo pack and currently have that on my iTunes account. I was wondering if there would be any possibility to transferring it onto the Galaxy Tab 2. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Before answering the questions, keep in mind that the Android powered Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 can not play any iTunes purchases with Apple Digital Rights Management (FairPlay DRM). However, all iTunes songs (at least in the US) will be DRM-free in steps since April 7, 2009. From my experience, if the song isn't copy protected it should play. If you have DRMed music from iTunes you can even "upgrade" them to DRM free and higher bit rate files; for a small price US$0.30/song or use a iTunes DRM removal software to strip DRM from them.
Unfortunately there's no legal way to directly transfer iTunes movies to Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, as those movies are DRM protected, so what should you do? There is indeed some solutions to download your DRM-protected videos and music from iTunes to Galaxy Tab 2 for playback without any limitations, the program I am using is a program called ChewTune which my brother recommended to me. It is a professional DRM removal tool which can help you strip iTunes DRM protection and convert iTunes M4V movies to Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 highly compatible MP4 videos. It supports handling protected movies, TV shows purchased from iTunes, Amazon, Blu-ray/DVD Digital Copies, BBC iPlayer, Blockbuster, Wbdigitalcopy, Bestbuy and more. The playback of the converted videos is as decent as possible as original. The equivalent Mac version is the ChewTune Mac, which can encode iTunes DRM movies to Galaxy Tab 2 on Mac OS X Leopard (10.5), Snow Leopard (10.6), Lion (10.7). The following guide shows you how to convert and play iTunes videos on Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 tablet with ease.
How to Convert iTunes movies to Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 compatible videos?
The quick start guide below uses ChewTune Windows screenshots. The way to encoding iTunes M4V to Galaxy Tab 2 on Mac is almost the same. Just make sure you get the right version according to your computer operating system.
P.S. When converting the M4V files from iTunes, better set it not remember position before converting movies. Here’s way to go: Launch iTunes, and switch to "Movies" under LIBRARY. Select the videos you’d like to convert, right click on them, and select “Get Info”.
Step 1. Import iTunes M4V videos
Install and Run the iTunes to Android Converter. Drag and drop the movies from iTunes Movie Library to the software. Or click "Add" button on the main interface to import iTunes protected movies. Or click "File – Add Video/Audio or Add from folder" to load the M4V videos. ChewTune supports batch conversion so you can convert several files in one go.
When converting protected iTunes files, please make sure your videos play well in iTunes (iTunes 11 included) (iTunes is required for the conversion). Otherwise, the conversion may fail.
Step 2: Set output format and folder
Click "Format" bar and move mouse to "Samsung" column, you can easily find the video preset of "Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1(*.mp4)". The output videos could fit on Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 perfectly.
Step 3. Customize the best profile for Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (optional)
If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. According to my experience, for watching videos on Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, 720p with 1500~2000kbps is just all right. I found bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa. Below is the best video format for Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 per my experience:
Sampling rate- 44.1khz
Step 4: Convert iTunes DRM videos to Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
After you finish all the settings, now click "Convert" to remove DRM from iTunes purchased M4V files and convert them to MP4 for Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. When the conversion completes, you will get DRM-free MP4 video files and just effortlessly transfer them to your tablet.
